New Curriculum Ideas, 2010-2011

800 books are published in the U.S. every single day, and doesn’t it seems like half of them are Bible studies? How is a small group leader to keep up with which curriculums are doctrinally accurate and effective to change lives?  To assist you in that endeavor, I have assembled a small collection of the most recommended and approved options for our small groups, which you’ll find below, and also attached last year’s list and the list of curriculums LCCC Small Groups have used over the past three years.

NOTE: To offset your cost and build our small groups resource library, we will purchase the DVDs and/or leader guides. Contact me to place the orders!
